Today’s devotion is based on Genesis 3:7, “Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.”
“Why did I do that? What was I thinking? It all sounded good and felt right at the moment. But now, all I feel is guilt and shame.” We all live with guilt and regret for our past behavior.
Whatever it is in your past that is filling you with guilt and shame, lay it at the cross. Confess it to Jesus and be assured that he has paid for it. Your guilt is gone, and your sin is washed away. In its place, Jesus gives you forgiveness and eternal life and invites you to live for him.
Please pray with me: Dear Lord Jesus, thank you. You have washed away my sin and paid for my guilt. Please help me not look backward but forward in joy to the heaven you have won for me. Help me live for you today. Amen.
